The DC Metro Urban Health Program (UHP)


The DC Metro Urban Health Program (UHP), within the Office of Applied Public Health at the Milken Institute School of Public Health is a voluntary public health-focused, service-learning initiative open to all residential GW Public Health students (undergraduate and graduate standing). Over the course of the Fall and Spring semesters, students from various professional backgrounds and fields of study apply to join one of six current UHP Project Teams to participate in meaningful community engagement. Students are charged with implementing a health education/promotion project developed around community-identified needs and latest best practices. Projects are create to support community members identified public health needs. This program provides students with an opportunity to translate their public health knowledge learned in the classroom to practice in the larger DC community while gaining essential team and leadership skills.
